Someone can be madly in love with you and still not be ready.
They can love you in a way you have never been
loved and still not join you on the bridge.
And whatever their reasons you must leave.
Because you never ever have to inspire anyone to meet you on the bridge.
You never ever have to convince someone to do the work to be ready.
There is more extraordinary love, more love that you have never seen,
out here in this wide and wild universe.
And there is the love that will be ready.
Nayyirah Waheed

Weekend Recap: Memorial Day Weekend x Linganore Take 2

Memorial Day weekend never disappoints. The weather has been perfect - which is rare - so I made sure to make the most of it. I spent the first half of the weekend catching up with family, and used the other half to get out with friends. Ashleigh and I returned to Linganore Winecellars for their Caribbean Wine Festival, (along with her future hubby) and it's pretty safe to say that it will probably become an annual tradition to kick off the summer right. Last year I fell in love with the raspberry wine, but this year it was all about 'Indulgence' (pictured) a sweet red wine with hints of chocolate. Take my word… highly recommended. 

Other highlights from the weekend:
poetry cyphers
honorable mention for the mango sangria
poolside lounging
countless inside jokes
the avengers II
somebody's uncle getting down by the grill
and epic potato salad

all in all I had a great time.

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend! Five more days 'til The Roots picnic.

Love Is In Bloom!

So last night I had the honor of not only being present for, but helping in the execution of the proposal between one of my nearest and dearest friends Ashleigh, and her boyfriend fiancĂ© Brandon. It was a great night filled with laughter, good friends and family. The love in the room was contagious - you couldn't deny it. 
The proposal went off without a hitch and she had no clue… it was perfect. Congratulations to the future Mr. and Mrs. Beech! The way you two love each other is inspiring. Now let's plan this wedding. :)

Weekend Recap: Art is Life

below, an excerpt from the "Tao of Inner Peace." I'm taking my time reading it but find that I discover each chapter right on time. I love the sweet serendipity in that.

Don't Move x Phantogram

two weeks.

Musings: 5/18/2015

someone that awakens your soul,
soul mate

in the past week I've
joined a gym,
started a super dope new black and white portrait series,
perfected my stir fry recipe so much so that I don't have to
order carry out ever again

life is good

sometimes we have to stop and reset our course
realign ourselves with what's important
and hold dear to that

And I Go Back To….

cue Amy Winehouse "Back to Black"

so I'm extremely hardheaded and found a way to go from blonde to black (and back to blonde again.. without the awkward green stage) about two weeks ago - what can I say? I get bored. I loved going black for the weekend, and with over three inches of "roots" and no desire for a touch up, I may be bringing back the look permanently.


tbt inspired. 
back when my hair used to grow… around 2011 I believe

Cinco De Musings: 5/5/2015

you've got to be smarter than your last mistake
bolder than your last year
refuse to take the same path that led you nowhere
jump, and if you soar or if you fall, do so gracefully

( SIDE NOTE: not looking back )
